Ruth Shafer took this picture of her friend Mary Rogers fishing the Hood River circa 1920.
I think the 1920's was when women started wearing pants in public, but it was still frowned upon by many.
Pants sure made it easier to wade out into a stream!

Isn't she wonderful! Wicker creel, jodhpurs, great hat and I hope those are waterproof boots!

Wish I knew how to fly fish.

You can always learn. I took a course in fishing, and I loved fly fishing since you can put them back after you've caught them.
